Holiday Decorating--Homes filled with love

Hi Everyone~
The other day, I showed you pictures of my friend
Sharon's fireplace, but I didn't put the photo in
that is a close-up, so I wanted to post it today.
Isn't this beautiful?

Sharon's artistic nature is seen throughout her entire
house--and oh, do I love Christmas decorating!!

My friend Donna just got her tree
decorated~Aren't these just the
most lovely pictures?

Donna is so creative...She made garlands,
wreaths, and everything so beautiful
for the holidays...They're in her Etsy
store and on her blog.

I love all the creativity that so many people share in the blogging world. It is such an inspiration. And now, during the holidays, it has even more meaning when we contemplate the source of creativity.

When I am in the midst of my own creativity, I feel "at one" with Our Creator....I feel fully involved in "the dance" of life as colors and textures swirl in front of me.

It is a blessing to be able to express ourselves, whether it is through art, music, photography--whatever our outlet is.

I have been doubly blessed by so many of you who share your talents--and friendship--and prayers. You lift me up.

I hope that these pictures "lift you up" today as you enjoy the holidays
and all the preparations.



  1. All so pretty!

    Have a super day.
